Natalia goes by the name "Natty," and she had heart problems when she was born. Her parents didn't know if she'd live. Natty had heart surgery when she was 2. See London's Daily Mail, "'It's wonderful that others see what we see in her': Parents share joy as five-year-old girl with Down's Syndrome becomes child model."
In other news, scholarly "experts" at Oxford University are out with a new research paper arguing that newborn babies are "morally irrelevant" and killing them after birth would be no different than aborting a fetus in the womb. Really. See Telegraph UK, "Killing babies no different from abortion, experts say."
I'm not at a loss for words. I just think the enormity of the inherent evil here speaks for itself. So I'll let others comment on this one and I'll save my outrage for another day. The beauty of people like Natty shines one million times brighter than those oh-so enlightened "experts" and their impossibly depraved "scientific" findings.
